Dementia Assisted Living – Signs To Recognize

Five Signs That Your Loved One May Need Dementia Assisted Living

You may have noticed certain things beginning to happen in your home with your loved one who suffers from dementia. You have asked yourself if dementia assisted living is the right choice. Moving a loved one into the care of another residential area is a hard decision to make. When faced with the decision, look out for five signs that caregivers can look for in order to recognize when dementia assisted living is necessary:

  1. Escalating care needs – Are the person’s care needs beyond my physical abilities? Is the health of the person with dementia or my health as a caregiver at risk? Are the person’s care needs beyond my physical abilities? If you’re answering yes to those questions, it might be time to have that tough family conversation.
  2. “Sundowning” – Those with dementia can come down with a syndrome of agitated behavior that becomes more pronounced in the late afternoons and evenings. This can be hard on caregivers.When it begins to disrupt family routines beyond a comforting amount can be a sign that assistance is needed.
  3. Wandering –  According to doctors, later stages of dementia pose a higher risk of wandering. “They can wander even if you just take the time to go to the bathroom,” she says, and the probability of falls and injuries increases.
  4. Caregiver stress – If the care provider is stressed, this is an important sign, just as any dementia behaviors described.
  5. Home safety issues – It can be time to look for dementia assisted living if the loved one with dementia is unsafe in their current home.

If you have asked yourself honestly any of these questions and have come up with a clear yes, there are services that can be provided for you and your loved one. Our professional staff is experienced with those who suffer from dementia, specially trained to meet their needs, and yours.
